In case you like the sound of the Greaser costume idea you can find lots of clothing & wigs from your local or online Halloween costume stores. Grease along with The Outsiders, The Lords of Flatbush & Streets of Fire give us a great idea of how these costumes ought to look. The bad boy & girl greaser costumes ought to always have a leather jacket, unless you go for the all pink Pink Ladies jackets that the greaser girls wore in the film Grease.
The greasers were the opposite of the preps. Those goodie shoes who wore bowling shirts, nerd looking jackets & poodle skirts topped with twin sweater sets. Add a pair of saddle shoes & black glasses & you have achieved that oldies but goodies look basically. The prom king & prom queen costumes are another popular prep disguise you can think about.
Huge hair do's were all the rave back then to. So in case you have ever desired to sport a "Beehive" Halloween is the time to do it. There's lots of wigs you can pick from or you can wear a pony tail. In case you are a fan of Frenchie. the beauty school student in Grease, you can go for the dyed pink hair look.
